    Pennies 2 Pounds  

    We are working with East Riding Council on an exciting project to establish school banks in the primary schools in Goole and Howdenshire.

    We need volunteers to go into schools once a week to help record deposits, enrol pupils in the Pennies 2 Pounds clubs and promote the scheme. Training will be provided that could lead to an accredited award.
